£1m Yorkshire big wheel boost for Kuwait children’s hospice

A FERRIS wheel with a diameter of 60ft has been installed at a Kuwait-based children's hospice, thanks to an engineering company in Yorkshire.

Doncaster-based WGH Transportation Engineering, which designs and builds leisure rides, inclined lifts and specialist public transport, is also close to completing work on a ride system for the Titanic Signature Building in Belfast, described as "a first" by managing director of WGH Andrew Howarth.

The ride will rotate and travel up and down, as well as travelling around a track, which he claimed has not been done before.

WGH secured the £1m contract to develop a ferris wheel at Byat Abdullah Children's Care Hospice in Kuwait after children at the hospice expressed a wish to visit Disneyland. As this was not possible, it was decided a ferris wheel would fit the bill, as it could be enjoyed by a child in a wheelchair.
